Unemployed kitchen gadgets + beach treasures

Unemployed kitchen gadgets + beach treasures - student project

This was soo much fun. I looked around my kitchen for weird stuff that I never use to create the Unemployed Kitchen Gadgets collection. Not sure whether to get rid of these things now!

All drawings were done with black fineliner with some markers for colour and some additional colour applied to backgrounds and type in photoshop to pull the composition together.

For my second project I gathered some shells and other beach treasures from my huge collection that I keep in a glass vase. I have always struggled with drawing shells but these came out OK I think...

I am really happy with the coloured background. I chose to highlight the green from the sea urchin shell so it didn't look aas much like a cracker!
